This beer is full of big clean malty flavor and aroma, backed by hints of toffee and Tupelo honey, providing creamy, almost vanilla notes to the beer. It pours a crystal clear golden with a bright white head. The malt comes through in layers that range from bready to rich graham cracker. These layers are then nuanced with the rich honey character. The finish is clean and provides a full texture that is far from cloying. This beer is a bit too easy to drink despite its high alcohol level. It might even be considered a dangerously drinkable beer due to its refreshing flavor and only a little hint of alcohol in t he taste.
